    Exactly!



    Not saying it is bad, but it is more than what most (almost all) mortals can afford.

    Fixed.

    I know. I thought that the blue font would have been redundant.

    Yes. TIT is the turbine INLET temperature. It is the temperature between the combustion chamber and the 1st turbine stage.
    As the gas flows through he turbine and gives part of its energy to the...

    Or he uses TIT instead. TIT is more important that EGT. EGT is a "byproduct" of TIT. Imagine the EGT in an F-14 with afterburner. But the TIT remains under control.

    I guess that purchasing the plane is the least of the costs. How much is just a hangar for it, per year? How much is a flight hour? Fuel, allowances for maintenance, crew of 3 required (and you CAN'T...

    I am very curious about how did this end up happening. I am sure that Delta would not take a plane and a crew to send a plane where they don't needed it (i.e. where they don't have plans for this...

    Evan is right: There are no epaulets seen in this picture.

    There is one thing that doesn't seem to make much sense in that chart: lack of continuity. What's the difference between flying 4:59 at 949C and then reduce to 914C and flying 4:59 at 949C, then 0:02...

    But in the DC-3? If you have one engine running rough, delivering significantly less than rated power, coughing and sputtering fire through the exhaust during a couple of minutes, and then it...

    ANy indication that the EGT was too high? The tailpipe fire can be unburned fuel burning when it gets out of the engine.

    Spot-on correction.

    Pilot was identified and he was apparently a very experienced pilot.

    Given the poor visibility at that time, we cannot discard CFIT either.

    If you loose the FADEC (both channels) for a given engine, you've lost control of the engine. Either the engine will self-shut down or it will keep at a constant fuel metering valve setting, constant...

    And that's where the added complexity of the systems and their integration and, communication and interaction (which again adds a lot of complexity) comes into play.

    Again, I don't think this will be the path that airliners design will take in the future. Think FADEC. FADEC sorts all issues internally, or it doesn't work. There is no way for a pilot to turn...

    What's the GREAT ADDED complexity for TOMORROW?

    Actual deign of the airplane? The plane itself? What is the plane itself? The TIT gauge counts as the plane itself but the 3 ELAC and 2 SEC don't?

    Ok so maybe it is time to define "complex" and how to measure complexity.

    His wife was killed by a bear, so not sure whether the "nothing can harm you" is a fair proclamation (although, admittedly, she was not flying).

    Yes, I thought that the CRJ was out of production but I was wrong. That's why in the following post I said "new designs". The C-series / A220 is FBW.

    That was 30 years ago. AFAIK all RJ's currently in production all have AT and are FBW which means there is a computer between the stick and the flap, and control laws are involved.
